Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYGrandma I purchased this timer to control my porch light. I often leave the house before dark and return after dark. In order to avoid leaving a light on all day and to make the house appear more "lived in" I added timers to some of my light switches. This timer was easy to install, (I'm a mid-sixty year old grandma with little electrical experience) and the timer is easy to program as long as you have the instructions in front of you. The timer has been functioning properly and I really like that I can have multiple programs for different days of the week and different times of the day. Over-riding the timer is easy and you have the option to either override all the timer functions so that it becomes a manual switch or you can do a 'short term' over-rider and the timers will resume the scheduled programing. As with all in wall timers I've encountered, this is a large device and you'll want to make sure you have enough room in your box for all the wires and the timer to properly fit back into the wall box. The only complaint I have with this timer is the programing buttons on the inside of the panel are so incredibly small that it is VERY difficult to read the print on them when i want to add or change a program.

This was fairly easy to install because it was a replacement for one that only lasted 2 months. These work great and are really nice when your away for a couple of days. Hopefully this one lasts longer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sindbad Excellent timer, highly recommended
Excellent timer. easy to install and works great. Turns on and off at dusk and dawn, when I want lights on and off automatically. One downside,backside size is a bit big, so if you want to fit it into an old wall outlet, it might be a bit tricky, however when installed, works great. Light is an added extra, thought not very necessary.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tom The programing is complex. Instructions for programing are tedious and not as complete as I would like.
If you experience an AC power outage, the time will need to be reset. Difficult to figure out how to do it.
It needs a back-up battery that will maintain the settings, including the time, date, etc.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jayhustle Easy install... easy program
Great timer. Installed within 30 mins and programmed in about 10 mins for the whole week. The install instructions are spot on if you have basic electrical knowledge. The buttons on the device are very small but manageable. Display screen is bright and large enough to read. Great product thus far. Installed and working for about a week or so.

I replaced a similar switch that stopped working after about 6 years. This switch requires a ground wire, which the other did not. The backlight feature on this switch is better than the old one, making it easier to read. Programing it is a little tricky mainly because the buttons are so tiny, but once it is setup, it works just fine.

Quit after little more than one year. Worked fine while it lasted. Will not replace, I'm done with this brand.

This switch was easy to install. Directions included were easy to follow, especially after the Home Depot Electrical Dept. gentlemen walked me through them and I took notes. Programming in straight forward if you follow the directions enclosed with the switch. I didn't even have to kill the power to do the install.
